    Recently purchased a hoodie and hat from Bowhunt or Die. I was so excited to get the package and couldn't wait to open it when I got home. I was extremely disappointed to see that it's made in China. So unfortunately I will not be wearing Bowhunt or Die Gear and it really sucks because I love the show and want to show my support. The cheap glue factory smell gave it away.

    So just to be fair, I looked at every piece of hunting clothing and every piece of normal clothing that I own and none of it is made in China. I know that clothing is made in many different countries and that's fine, I'm just not buying clothing from China. Just curious if anyone else feels the same way?

    Typically clothing made in China is very cheap and made very cheaply, surely you did not pay much for the hoodie and hat.

    May want to throw away your phone, tablets, TVs....any electronic device really. More than likely your furniture. Start removing parts of your vehicle. How serious are you about made in USA stuff? Just curious. Oh just as a heads up, "made in USA" generally means "Assembled in USA".... not really "made" here.

    What gear? If it's the light weight hoodie then I'll have to give those children in the sweat shop props. It's a comfortable shirt.

    Well they chose to sell made in China products! I will choose not to buy made in China products! But I like the forum's, the videos and alot of the archery and hunting products advertised here as they are USA made.

    Again, see my previous post. Don't ride the fence on "will only buy made in America products" only when it is convenient. If your going to do it and preach it then do it 100%. That's all I ask.

    How about making the choice and buying American when possible, forgone conclusion that it is nearly impossible to buy anything electronic without foreign made components.

    If it is comfortable and looks good, I wear it. I buy American when I can, but I don't look for it exclusively.

    I buy what I can afford! I have my own construction company and I hate to even say this. but a lot of the finish products we have trouble with on our jobs is likely made in America. very sad to say. sometimes we joke by saying where is the Chinese junk at least it has all the parts and is consistent. I think americans have lost some of the pride they put into their products. americans seem to only care about one thing= the $$$$$. don't get me wrong we do get a few things from this country that are good quality. the best stuff we typically get is made in Sweden, Germany, Italy.

    I wonder if we go back to some the XOP vs Lone Wolf threads and see if some have flip flopped opinions.

    Is this really a topic? Is the OP against only China or anything foreign? I'm definitely for made in the U.S.A. but lets be realistic. Almost all the produce we have at our grocery store comes from Mexico. The meat from Mcdonalds a person eats comes from Canada. Even President elect Trump has factories in China. Why is this a topic? I'm confused? :confused:
